    I enjoyed this one...

    Game 4150707
    (Up to 11.g3 is Kuhn/Ionascu 1997 0-1 when I preferred 11...Qxh2 to the played 11...Nxg3)

    1.d4...Nf6
    2.c4...e5
    3.dxe5...Ng4
    4.Nf3...Nc6
    5.e4?
    (5.Bg5 is usual here while 5.e3 is also solid)
    5...Bc5 (this gives 24 results on chesslive.de with 15 black wins & 5 white victories)
    6.Nd4...Nxf2
    7.Nxc6...bxc6
    8.Qf3...Nxh1
    9.Be3...Bxe3
    10.Qxe3...Qh4+
    11.g3...Qxh2
    12.Nd2...Qxg3+
    13.Qxg3...Nxg3
    14.Bd3...d6
    15.exd6...cxd6
    16.Kf2...Nh5
    17.Nf3...O-O (making the most of the advantage)
    18.b4...Bb7
    19.Rh1...Nf4
    20.Bb1...h6
    21.a4...d5
    22.exd5...cxd5
    23.cxd5...Bxd5
    24.Rc1...Rac8
    25.Rh1? (this made no sense & is just a loss of tempo & it re-pins Nf3)
    ...Rfe8
    26.Rd1...Re2+
    27.Kg3...Nh5+
    28.Kg4...Rb2
    29.Nd4...Rxb4

    I don't think there's any way back from here:


    30.Kxh5...Bf3+! (white must give up more material or get mated)
    31.Nxf3?...Rc5+
    0-1
